Welcome fellow delegates,
We are happy to bring forth our sixth annual ASTMUN conference, which will be held completely online. This year our theme is Equality. The word equality carries a lot of weight in our current world. It refers to the struggle against racism that is plaguing the world today and throughout our history. It refers to those that are hurting the most as a result of the covid-19 pandemic. It refers to the immigrants that are struggling to make a living and find a home. As emerging leaders and policymakers of this world, we can work together to find solutions to problems that are real and current on our Earth.
ASTMUN is proud to be an event where people from different backgrounds can unite and begin making a change in our world. Our diversity opens our hearts and minds to the several issues and perspectives that surround us. Now more than ever, diversity and equality are necessary to build and maintain peace.
In ASTMUN 2021 our delegates will explore issues and solutions regarding equality. In UN Women, delegates will discuss gender inequality and the imprint it has left on our society and economy. The Security Council will explore the ongoing tensions that may threaten global security. The ECOSOC committee will focus on sustainability in developing countries. The General Assembly will touch on ethnic cleansing and the rights of minority groups. The WTO will research the exploitation of lesser developed countries in trade. Lastly, the Human Rights committee will discuss freedom of press and police brutality among other topics.
Our increasingly globalized and interconnected world has created an imbalance of power on a global scale. Inequality and the distribution of power is by far not a new problem. It resides in every town, city, state, and country. This is why these issues are so important. The goal of this conference is to analyze these issues and propose sustainable solutions that promote equality. The young brilliant minds of the future will explore them and find hope in the darkness, in ASTMUN 2021
